Poor management, unexciting workplace
The paid time off, including lots of holidays, is very generous and should not be overlooked. Other than that, benefits are so-so, worse if you are comparing to tech companies.
There are some pockets of this agency that are ok, but overall management is poor, promising great things that they can't deliver. Most prominently, the opportunity for advancement is mostly nonexistent. Much of this is due to state budgetary issues, so JC management isn't entirely to blame. However, they do nothing to compensate for that. For example, telecommuting became much more restricted in the year before I left.
If you are an attorney, this can be a great place to work. For anyone else, it really depends on which group you work in within the agency.
Also, in terms of culture, be aware that this is mostly older people with families. They tend to care a lot about the wellbeing of the agency, but mostly because they're worried about job security (which is understandable).
